There are other neat bits of information to glean from the video, so if you’re interested in developer commentary you’ll want to give it a close watch either way.

Resident Evil Village is the next installment in the Resident Evil series. Characters like Ethan Winters and Mia from Resident Evil 7 were shown in the trailer, along with Chris Redfield. Resident Evil Village is slated to release in 2021 on the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC.
